Bengaluru, Nov. 9: WWE taped the upcoming edition of Monday RAW, last night from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.
This is not the first time that they will be airing an episode of the flagship show in a taped format. Several times in the past, they were forced to broadcast the show in a delayed format due to the time zone differences.
But this time around, they did not reserve any secondary show-taping during this trip on Monday and in fact concluded both SmackDown and Raw on the same night within a gap of just a few hours. With that being said, check out the spoilers from the show organized by the red brand for next week, (credit to wrestlingINC.com for the updates)
